Hi,

I'm new to the forum, and also a new used IS300 owner.

I'm thinking about replacing all of my tires at 60K (the treads of the two front tires are wearing thin, and I don't think it'll be a good idea to rotate them to the back.. ).

Anyways, just wanna know what everyone is running on, or had good experiences with. I believe my tires are 215/45HR17. Thanks. :bigSmile:

:) Hey, welcome aboard, enjoy surfing the site and congrats on your new toy.

A few members have switched to 17", 18" & 19" aftermarket rims and different brand tires, depending on their preference. I run on 17" aftmkt rims & Falkens. :)

There's a wheel and tire forum dedicated to questions just like this. I'm running 225/45/17 on stock rims with Michelin Pilot Sport All-Season tires. Couldn't be happier great in summer and winter. In order for us to suggest tires for you you'll have to let us know where you live (winter/summer/both) is it your daily driver, how agressive or conservative you drive. ;)

ah.. whoops.. missed that forum.. ;) .. sorry about that.. i'll post the question in the right forum next time..

i used the car to commute as well as for leisure.. i prefer all-season.. i live in the Bay Area.. and i don't really think i'm an aggressive driver.. unless some people drives me crazy by driving 25 in a 40 zone.. :p

Hey welcome aboard...

IMO I would go for the Fuzion ZRi tires... they are good quality and manufactured by Bridgestone/Firestone.

I'm sure that a lot of .netters will agree

Here's a link to the tires on tire rack

I agree that's what I'm running on my stockies right now. Not the most performance oriented tire but good enough(Don't see the track just somewhat of a spirited driver). There amazing in the rain also.

Pirelli PZero Nero. Great all season tire at a great price. I got mine at tire Rack.
I second that. It grips good and is awsome in both rain and snow. Plus, it's like $120 each mounted and balanced.

+ quiet?

Hi; so can I get good performance, and traction control in the rain, but reduce the road noise a little. My IS is brand new (05), and has the Dunlop tires. Will replace later, but these dunlops are kind of noisy. Not concerned about the price, just want the best, and a little more quiet on the road.

well those dunlop sport 9000's are actually nice tires, pretty expensive..o and you're gonna have to replace them sooner than later b.c those wear down real quick..if i were u i'd go with the falken grb's 225/45/17...the ride is very smooth and only 400 shipped from dtd.com
